Year 3

utumn Term 2: Mighty Metals

The Year 3 children visited Space 2 Learn to make their own robots using the Lego WeDo. They programmed their robots using the computer, and tried to get them to follow a track!

We looked on the internet for inspiration about robot designs.

The children investigated the forces of Gravity and Air Resistance when they were finding out which material would make the best parachute for The Iron Man.

The Y3 children designed and made their own magnetic board game.

Autumn Term 1: Scrumdiddlyumptious

The children designed and made their own fruit using dough, and then created persuasive adverts on Purple Mash to sell their fruit to family and friends.

We investigated what would happen if we put Skittles into water. We discovered that the colours came off the sweets, but did not mix together in the water!


We went for a visit to Rossmere Forest School, and learned how to make special Bonfire Night celebration food – toffee apples on a real campfire!

We worked very hard to follow instructions about how to make a banana milkshake. We then found out all about bananas – where they come from, how they grow, what recipes can be made from bananas. The Y3 children worked *incredibly* hard to show off their Computing skills when they created video adverts about bananas! Click each link to watch their videos.

During the Summer Term, the children in Year 3 learned about Ancient Greece in their topic, Gods and Mortals.
They read the story of Theseus and the Minotaur, and then created their own Minotaur masks using paper mache.

After reading the Greek myth about Daedalus and Icarus, the Year 3 children were challenged to create their own wings for Icarus. They tested their effectiveness using a hairdryer!

The children in Year 3 are studying their new Summer Term topic, Tremors.
They went on a ‘rock hunt’ to find rocks in our own environment – check out their photo collages of the rocks that they found!

The children were then able to collect rocks from the school grounds. They found out all about the British artist, Andy Goldsworthy, and then worked in groups to create Andy Goldsworthy-inspired sculptures using the rocks that they collected!

The children in Year Three have been working hard as part of their new topic, Tribal Tales. They compared tools from the Stone Age with tools that we might use now. They then went foraging in the outside classroom to find materials to make their own Stone Age-inspired tools!

In literacy, we used our knowledge of PREDATORS to create our own descriptive predator poems. Some children created kennings; some wrote rhyming poems; and others worked hard to write tricky haikus!
